Welcome address of the Mayor of Moscow

Dear friends,

I’d like to heartily welcome you for the Twelfth Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival, one of the world’s biggest military tattoos as well as one of the most favorite events of Moscow’s cultural life. 

Year by year the Festival has been continuously growing, expanding both pools of audiences and participants. Some of the world’s best military bands and artistic ensembles successfully show their talents and skills on Red Square, Poklonnaya Hill, Moscow’s parks and railway stations awarding Muscovites and guests of the capital with the most remarkable and vivid emotions.

The Spasskaya Tower Festival is engaged in preserving glorious wind music traditions, in promoting military service as well as in advancing cultural dialogue between counties and nations. 

The Festival pays much of its attention to charity programs. Hence, annually more than five thousand Muscovites from the socially vulnerable groups of people may attend the Festival’s shows. 

I want to say thanks to all the organizers and participants of this spectacular event for giving us an opportunity of once again feeling this incredible spirit of joy and endless beauty.  

My dear friends, I wish you all great mood as well as new and exciting meetings with the world of arts. 

Mayor of Moscow
Sergey Sobyanin
